In the case of that photo, however, my guess would be a combination of an aft CG and an overserviced nose strut. A light touchdown followed by a long rollout on arrival could play some roll, though.

Could be that the brakes had been applied or there was a bump on the runway and the nose strut was rebounding when the picture was snapped.

What is "overserviced?"
|Quoting legoguy (Reply 6):|
I assame then that a rearwards centre of gravity would not have any serious effects on flight apart form a slight nose up attitude.
